CD Copy Protection Scheme Fails

from the try-try-again dept

Apparently, BMG Germany has been testing out a new CD technology that is supposed to prevent copying. Instead, in many cases, it seems to have prevented listening altogether. There have been a bunch of returns as angry customers have pointed out that the CD just doesn’t work on their player. When are the music companies going to learn that all this effort they keep putting into copy protection plans is a complete waste?
